Keep in mind the thick client Access is not supported on Windows after Win7.
Consider the newer Java based client instead. With the new one I have not
seen what you are experiencing.

Yes, I have seen it. Tried upgrading to the latest service pack, but still
no luck. I usually just hit enter or page up/page down, and it will come

Hi all,

I'm running the latest greatest version of IBM i Access for Windows on my
Windows 8.1 pc. (R7.1 service pack SI53584)

I'm noticing that my emulation screen sometime goes all black. I can't quite
explain when/why it happens but a long period of inactivity *sometimes*
seems to be related. If you start hitting the tab key, input fields will
start appearing. Min/Max-ing the window doesn't do anything.

Anyone else seeing this problem?
